Meatpacking Loft

The 2,880-square-foot loft is located in an 1890s printing factory built by John Jacob Astor in Manhattan's Meatpacking District. The building, a hybrid structure of heavy timber, cast iron, and masonry construction, was converted a century later into loft apartments with little respect to the building's history or character. LEONE DESIGN STUDIO'S goal was to create a casual yet luxurious living space that embraced, rather than negated, the industrial quality of the historic structure.

The owners, a family with two young sons, work in the fashion industry and they wanted a space to accommodate their lifestyle while reflecting their personality and taste. The renovation TRANSFORMED THE LOFT into a SERIES OF bright, open SPACES, with DECOR by designer Jon Call. The sophisticated palette of pale, natural materials contrasts the existing wood and steel structure and captures the pared-down luxury and subtle lines that are the hallmarks of the owners' style and brand.

Interior Designer
Jon Call
Mr Call Designs

Jon Call studied architecture in Seattle before moving to New York to work for Diamond Baratta. After that, he worked for Shawn Henderson before striking out on his own company, Mr Call Designs, in 2010. The name of the firm, a somewhat cheeky reference to the days when designers were known by Mr. or Mrs., embodies Call's spirit: he winks, rather than nods, at the past. His company achieves a tailored take on classic style that is American in the broad, free-spirited sense of the word. Above all, Call aims to give his clients spaces that balance comfort with "the luxury of a room with personality."

Join us for this exclusive opportunity to go behind the scenes and tour New York’s most coveted interiors.
